The Derby Tape Club on BBC Radio 4 First broadcast: Monday 1 March 2004, 8.30 pm A few years ago radio producer Mark Vernon bought a hoard of old reel-to-reel audio tapes in a car boot sale in Derby, as a job lot with an elderly and very heavy tape recorder. Coaxing the old machine back to life, he realised he had rescued the jettisoned archive of the Derby Tape Club - a group of amateurs who made, played and swapped recordings in the 1960s and 70s, when domestic tape-recording was in its...

The original intention was to provide sleep deprived hospital patients with the opportunity to share someone elses dreams via the hospital radio network. The piece is in part an homage to Barry Bermange and Delia Derbyshire's 1964 radio work, 'Inventions for Radio: Dreams'. It also includes readings of extracts from the dream diaries of artist, shamen and dream interpreter, Kate Walters,...

Using rolled up paper cones and sewing needles or scalpel blades as a stylus the performers play the records attempting to play each record simultaneously from as many different points as they can.

For the purposes of my sound recordings, Micheal Moneypenny, Consultant Anaesthetist at Forth Valley Royal hospital has been kind enough to demonstrate some of the equipment he uses daily in his work. A selection of these sounds were used to make this short radio feature - along with a an interview with Michael about the importance of sound in his occupation.

'The Tonic Garden' is the first programme in the 'Bedside Radio' series produced for the launch of Channel 604 (Radio Royal’s new arts channel). It was designed as an ambient radio piece with patients suffering from insomnia or tinnitus in mind. The voice interviews were initially intended just as research in this survey of soothing sounds but the descriptions and reasoning behind the choices ended up becoming an intrinsic part of the work itself. Field recordings and bespoke music are...
